SOURCE: freezer is frozen fridge is warm

Your model is most likely the Profile Artica style. Most times the defrost heater is burned out behind the rear of the freezer wall. Manually defrost and look at the defrost heater to see if burned out. That model possibly has the glass covered defrost heater and will be easy to spot if burned out because the element is inside a glass tube, If you replace the defrost heater also replace the defrost thermostat, Please send me your model number located near floor of the fresh food compartment door seal and kick plate, Thanks Sea Breeze

SOURCE: My GE fridge (gss25jemaww) stopped cooling.

This tell me the compressor is not running. I would like you to pull the fridge away from wall unplug and remove the cover over the compressor. Feel top of compressor and if too hot to hold hand there keep unplugged and let me know. There are some test I would like you or someone skilled with a test meter to do to eliminate the compressor start components and motherboard. Sea Breeze

SOURCE: fridge & freezer not cooling. Meat thawing

If the refrigerator isn't cool, you need to answer some questions, then see if the compressor is running.

First, answer these questions: Is the refrigerator completely dead? If so, see “It's stopped completely.” Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? If not, reset it.

Next, see if the compressor motor is running The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help. If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:

The compressor The Thermostat The overload, relay, or capacitor The defrost timer The condenser fan motor

SOURCE: freezer defrosted completely. fridge is barely

The compressor relay is bad on the main control board . Unplug the refrig and pull the refrig out and remove the 8X10 small panel on the back . You will see a blue plug with 3 larger (120v) wires going to it . Remove this plug . Looking at the plug , you will see : wire1 , wire2 , space , wire3 . (this is on the plug NOT the board ) . Using a short piece of insulated wire , with about 1/4" stripped off both ends , insert 1 end into wire1 and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . This will start the compressor to verify the main control board is bad . Pt # WR55X10942 .

The top freezer is working but lower part refrigerator compartment doesn't cool at all even adjusting temperature to Max cooling??? It is like fan doesn;t blow cold air from the freezer


There is a drain that carries water from the freezer to a drain pan in the base of the fridge. It has plugged preventing water from draining and in turn the water has froze blocking the flow of air to the fridge. First you must find the drain line in the rear of the fridge and unplug it as well as thaw the fridge out overnight to allow the water to drain... be patient as there will be a lot of ice to be thawed out, let me know if it works! good luck!

Freezer works, but has some ice forming and refrigerator not cooling.


The refrigerator half of a refrigerator/freezer does not produce any cold! The refrigerator is cooled by transferring air from the freezer to the fridge. The fridge temperature setting controls a flapper between the freezer and the fridge. There should be a fan which blows air from the freezer into the fridge (through the damper).
If the ice forming in the freezer is concealing the cooling coil and air can not move through the coils, then the overall result will be a warm freezer (even though there may be ice in one location) and a warmer yet fridge. This can be tested by unplugging the fridge and allowing a complete thaw. If the ice is the cause of the problem, then it should work for a short while until it freezes up improperly again
:o).

Left the freezer door open all night and morning noticed it in the afternoon. Thawed it and now the freezer works fine but the fridge doesn't cool


these fridge freezers have a damper flap which means your fridge will not cool until everything in the freezer is frozen hard again this may take up to two days depending how much you have in your freezer

Freezer works fridge does not


Needs to be completely thawed for 2 days. Or wlse the circulator fan under the freezer panel inside freezer is not working. Take the plastic bottom of freezer out and let thaw. Then plug in fridge and check if the fan is running inside there. Do not poke around inside there or fridge will be punctured and ruined.

Cooling Problem with Amana Fridge/Freezer model ARS2663AC


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
